Article: Interactive coastal governance

An article titled “Interactive coastal governance - The role of pre-modern fisher organizations in improving governability” has recently been published in the Ocean & Coastal Management journal. The article, written by Maarten Bavinck,  Svein Jentoft,  Jose J. Pascual-Fernández (TBTI members) and Boguslaw Marciniak, discusses the governability of coastal and marine regions, with a special focus on the regionalization. The authors explored the potential contribution of pre-modern fisher organizations to these processes, and argue that these organizations hold key lessons for modern day regionalization: they are relevant and adaptive to new challenges, contribute local knowledge, create social order, solve conflicts, and assist in regulating fishing effort.
